Molasses: What’s your pleasure?

So…do you like ‘em strong, dark and robust? Or do you prefer the more refined and fancy type? However your tastes run, we’ve got the molasses to satisfy all your needs.

There are different types or “grades” of molasses that are produced during the boiling and refining process. These all have slightly different qualities and uses.


Fancy Molasses

The highest grade of molasses available, fancy molasses is the pure juice of the sugar cane, condensed, inverted and purified. It is 100% natural and contains no additives or preservatives. It is a bit lighter in colour than the other molasses products, and the flavour is tangy sweet. All the recipes on this website are made with Fancy Molasses. Uses: Fancy molasses is an excellent topping on toast, pancakes or biscuits and is a great addition to marinades, rubs and sauces. It is a popular ingredient in baked goods, yielding softer cookies and crustier bread.

Cooking Molasses

Cooking Molasses is a blend of blackstrap and fancy molasses. It is thicker and darker than fancy molasses -- less sweet, with a more "full-flavoured" taste. Uses: It is commonly used to flavour sweets and cookies like gingersnaps, and is also excellent in baked beans and a variety of sauces such as barbeque and sweet-and-sour sauce. Any product made with Cooking Molasses will have a much more robust "molasses" flavour than if Fancy Molasses is used.

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap Molasses is the highly-concentrated, final by-product of the refined sugar manufacturing process. As the sugar crystallizes, the residual cane juice thickens into a dark mass and is separated out through a centrifuge. The resulting molasses is very dark with a robust, somewhat bitter flavour. Like the fancy molasses, it is a pure product and contains no added sulphates or sulphites. Uses: Blackstrap molasses is often used as a colouring agent in foods. Some prefer the more robust flavour of blackstrap molasses when preparing foods like baked beans or gingerbread. Blackstrap molasses is also recognized for its health benefits and is an excellent source of many minerals and nutrients including iron, magnesium and calcium.
